LG Velvet – the South Korean electronics giant’s latest offering that aims to redefine its smartphone strategy – has so far been limited to the domestic market. If you’ve been patiently waiting for the device, there is finally some good news as LG has announced plans for the phone’s wider rollout.

The company said in a press release that LG Velvet will arrive in key European markets such as Germany, Italy, Spain, Hungary, and Poland starting this month. And in the weeks that follow, the phone will be available in North America, Asia, Middle East, Africa, and Latin American markets too. LG has not revealed the price yet, but it should cost around $700 upon its arrival.

As for the phone itself, LG eschewed a flagship processor and bonkers camera hardware as a cost-cutting measure, and instead focused on the design and offering an overall smooth experience at an affordable price. But you still get features such as wireless charging, a military-grade build, and 5G support. Here’s a quick look at the LG Velvet’s hardware:

I’ve been writing about consumer technology for over three years now, having worked with names such as NDTV and Beebom in the past. Aside from covering the latest news, I’ve reviewed my fair share of devices ranging from smartphones and laptops to smart home devices. I also have interviewed tech execs and appeared as a host in YouTube videos talking about the latest and greatest gadgets out there.
